Scavenger Hunt Sunday (September 9, 2012)...

If it is  September 9th, then it is my pop's birthday.  So before we get to the hunt, a huge MWAH to my dad!  Happy birthday pops.  My parental units always give me a hard time about how old "I" am getting on each birthday.  Yeah well, I remind them that at least "I" don't have a 52-year-old daughter like THEY do.  Bam!!!!  Love ya dad.  You make me proud to be a "Daddy's Girl".

And on to this week's hunt.  The prompts this week are:  Mono-chromatic, Hair, Starts with the Letter..., Upside Down, and Soft.


1.  Mono-chromatic


"Fruit of the Sea"


"You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute' it.
There's shrimp kabobs shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo.
Pan fried, deep fried, stir fried.
There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp.
Shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatos, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich.
That's about it."



2.  Hair


"Rapunzel"


Okay, okay...the braces in the photo are a dead give away this was not taken within the last week.  But it isn't TOO old, I swear.  Anyway, it isn't my fault I'm using this...I swear AGAIN.  Thing #3 has the most GORGEOUS hair, and she promised me that she would let me use her for this prompt.  However, tenth grade must be a real "energy suck" cause she just couldn't seem to drag her lazy bones out of that bed of hers.  What's a mom to do?  Use what I got, and braces filled the need.  Sorry kidd-o.  But your hair looks mah-velous and you're cute with or without those braces, I SWEAR.  As usual, I'm sure you won't agree with me.


3.  Starts with the letter...


"A is for Ahhhhhh"

Did I miss something with this prompt?  I mean...was this a freebie and you could just put whatever you want here.  Not that that's exactly what I did or anything.


4.  Upside Down


"Soaring"

Well, the bird isn't upside down...but if you could have seen MOI taking the picture...just take my word for it.



5.  Soft


"Sugar and Spice"

Where can I get one of these?  I want one.  Nothing as soft and squishy as a baby.  I have no idea who this little girl is.  But when I saw that face I actually left my comfort zone and asked mom if I could take a photo.  Doesn't she look like the Gerber Baby?  There is some competition going on now where you can vote for who looks the most like the Gerber Baby.  How do I know that?  Well, my Facebook newsfeed tells me every time I log on.  Appears EVERYONE knows a Gerber baby and wants you to vote for him/her.  Sure wish I knew who this little girl is...I would nominate her myself. 





Voila'.  Another Scavenger Hunt in the books.  It just never fails that each week I am always a bit amazed I actually got it all accomplished.  If you want to see who ELSE got it accomplished, hop on over to Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday at Ramblings and Photos.  Take a cup of coffee with ya tho...you'll be staying awhile once you see all the gorgeous photos.

Happy Sunday.  Go E-A-G-L-E-S....EAGLES!  Sure wish I looked better in green, sigh.

  1. Well...I'm sure that beautiful daughter of yours won't mind a photo of her with braces rather than a photo that you would take of her lazy bones in bed after an exhausting first week of 10th grade! Love your Upside down photo....especially knowing how you feel about birds.

  6. Wow...your last 2 shots, i was going to pick your bird shot as my favourite as the feel of your photo seems to effortlessly soar. But then I reached your last one - she's cute yes, but your capture makes it - the colour, the catchlight, the movement and the moment - i hope you're feeling very proud.

  16. Love, love #1!!! I just re-watched the movie Forest Gump last weekend, and your description so remind of the scene when Forest's friend CJ was describing how many ways there were to make shrimp. Ha-ha...too funny. Braces?...what braces? Your daughter is beautiful & ♥the curls. ...and that baby is a dead ringer for Gerber. I'd nominate her. Great pics, have a blessed Sunday♥

  25. That's a good one Kathy, I am going to say that on my dad's next birthday. We are only 20 years apart so it stings a bit. LOL! Ewww to #1 - I scrolled really fast. Might have been shrimp, which I love - i just don't like seeing them "live-ish". #3 sure looks tasty! That stranger baby is adorable.

  26. Love the shrimp! Monochromic stumped me, but not you! I did better with Begins with the letter..., though (sticking out tongue)!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Swimps!!!! I just had grilled shrimp fajitas for lunch...love it!

  29. Love all of these...I was hungry after your monochromatic feast and thirsty after the letter A. Must go raid the kitchen now!!! :)

  30. Congrats on the completion! Great set of matching photos, seems like a fun game!

  31. Fabulous set Kathy.
    Oh my goodness your Monochromatic is awesome. I love Shrimp (especially Coconut shrimp).

    Hair - I'm so jealous...my hair has always been fine and thin. Ugh...she has hair to die for.

    Soft - Way to cute!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love your monochromatic even though I actually don't care for shrimp!

    Your upside down picture is awesome, and my thinking was along the same lines as you! I was practically upside down to get my picture too.

    I also agree that Starts with the Letter... was a giveaway prompt. May as well have been "photographers choice"!

  33. I hope the birds won today. It was looking touch and go on the ticker. No Eagles here-only Pats. My nickname at one time (many moons ago, but not in my childhood years) was "Gerbs". Go figure.
    Love your images. Great crop on the monochromatic, tho if you've ever peeled a big ol' sink of those, you won't be as eager to eat them. LOVE that someone else makes that FG Bubba shrimp reference. I don't know the whole thing tho like you do. Fun-nee.
    Maybe if your daughter hears that other people think she's beautiful she'll listen to them whereas they're not Mom. Tell her I think so. Happy day Kathy.
